I've just watched this so I may be really hyped, but I will say this: what a great shortfilm. I am really into frogs and this was great in both ways. When it comes to the visuals, well, there is no way to deny it, it is indeed beautiful. At the beggining I was surprised thinking it was all live-action, and real frogs. This depiction of their behaviour, interacting with each other, following their instintcs in this new places, meeting other frog fellows... It has good pace, you can tell that the story comes around calmly with its characters (this froggie bunch is great, they are very pleasant to watch). And well, you can also tell that this exploration of that new place it's not only theirs but ours, and that has to do a lot with the end. I will not say more because that would be a spoiler, but the ending is great, it changes everything (even the genre of the shortfilm, maybe?), and has a lot of sense in a way. Cool twist for 7 mins of 3D animal beauty... Such a pitty it did'nt get the Oscar for Best Animated Shortfilm, for me it was for sure better than the one that won. Recommended.
